Welcome...I'm delighted that you chose to visit! I started this blog in March 2010 and I am so happy that I did. It has made me more aware of the many ways that God is blessing my life. I have made some special friends who bless,teach,encourage,and entertain me! My desire is to be an encouragement to you. I hope you will tarry for a while and that you will come back to visit often.

catching up...

When you get this far behind, it's hard to decide whether to try to catch up or just start where you are. Since the holidays is what I missed posting, I am going to do a quick overview. I will warn you in advance, thee are lots of pictures but the text is brief.
I brought our youngest Tenn granddaughter home with me after being there for the play. We enjoyed her so much! We spent one morning at the park.

The rest of the family was in and out from Tues night until Sat when we had our family meal. We played, watched movies, ate..... even went bowling! But mostly we took turns holding our Little E!

Her uncle...they share the same birthday...30 years apart!

Her uncle from Tenn...this was the first time he saw her since her birth.

Her aunt loves her! She will be holding her own baby girl in March!

Her aunt-to-be loves her, too!

Sweet cousins!

Then it was Christmas! The girls with their new bedding.

The boy with one of his Mobigo games. He loves them!

New shirts...he looks like he likes them! :-)

He asked for a rolling tool box. In an effort to fool him, we wrapped one drawer!

The soon-to-be newlyweds asked for dishes.
They chose some lovely ones.

Our daughter and DIL visiting. Probably talking about babies!

Little E celebrating her first Christmas! She had been sick earlier in the week.
We were so grateful she was better!

Our daughter, SIL, and Little E!

Our younger son, DIL, and grandson.

Our older son and his family.

Our youngest granddaughter doesn't like sleeping in a toddler bed anymore.
She wanted a big bed (twin) like her sissy! She didn't quite understand why
her bed
was in our kitchen! :-)

I went to visit the grandboy (and his mom and dad) New Year's Eve eve.
He rode his new bike for me!

The grandgirls stopped in for the night on their way home from their visit in FL.
Holding the baby one more time was a priority!

At two months, she heard her first bedtime story at Gran's house. It was a cute scene and made for a sweet memory! Well, that's about it. There's one more Christmas story but it deserves its own post. Hope you all had a wonderful holiday...sorry I missed most of it. Glad to be back and am looking forward to getting caught up with you!

  5. Love all the pictures. The bedding looks really good. So glad we found that. My Lil E is a sweet thing! She was so tiny at thanksgiving.

  6. Things may have been quiet on your blog...but not in real life, I see! It looks like you enjoyed some great family times over the holidays. Happy New Year to you and yours!

  7. I, too, have missed you, but living life is better than blogging about it! Your family times look memorable and you have a beautiful crew to call your own!
